Microsoft offering bonus Skydrive storage to College Students

SkyDrive is a great way to back up and store files in the cloud, and access everything from your tablet, computer or Windows Phone. SkyDrive is a free service with 7GB of storage.  From students (or anyone else for that matter) 7GB might not be enough.

If you're a college student you can get an extra 3GB on top of that. All you need to do is head over here, enter a valid .edu email address, and a free storage code will be sent your way.

There are a few catches though. The extra storage space is only available for a year from redemption. Codes are limited to one per person and the code must be used by December 31, 2013.

It may not be the best deal, but if you need a bump in SkyDrive storage for your college needs, the extra 3GB could come in handy.  Oh... and if you haven't installed the SkyDrive app on your Windows Phone, you can find it here in the Windows Phone Store.
